Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

I have three Alba CTV840/A 14" colour television sets purchased in 1996. These TV's each have a single 75 Ohm Antenna input socket. Please advise me, is there an adapter/modem available which will enable these TVs to receive the digital signal when the terrestial signal ceases next year. Many thanks

NEED MANUAL FOR DVD Model#3119 Product code


on the rear of the dvd you will see a scart socket(large rectangular socket with 21 pin points), plug a scart into that and into one on the rear of the tv, the one on the tv should have an "av" number next to it, select this av input on the tv's remote and turn on the dvd. put in a dvd disc and follow the menu.
in the case of not having a scart on one or both use the red/white/yellow phono connections (any other colour on the tv will be composite inputs-DO NOT USE THESE) if only one has scart and the other r/w/y sockets you can purchase a lead with those connections.

Old tv plays dvds but when cable box is on or off image scrolls vertically on the screen. wondering if this is an issue that can be fixed or is symptomatic of a 15 yr old tv. thanks.


I'm not sure what you mean by "cable box is on or off". Do you mean connected? If the cable box is connected to the TV through a 300-ohm antenna input, you are probably getting a lot of interference from the workings of the cable box. Try moving the cable box away from the TV.
If the TV is connected to the cable box with a 75-ohm cable, it may not be properly grounded - try another cable.
Also try manually tuning the channel on which the cable signal comes in, usually 3 or 4. Try an alternate channel.

If the DVD player is built into the set, the signal is less subject to outside interference. If the DVD player connects to RCA jacks on the set, it is also less subject to interference.
Vertical hold problems can be caused by aging capacitors in the "sweep" circuits but usually one sees that as loss of vertical hold on the DVD signal, as well.
Good luck.

Hd channels not showing


Your tv has a input named COMPONENT to make work this input you need three RCA conectors (RED GREEN BLUE) plus two audio RCA Conectors red and white. If you have another set that can be plug in in this input and that set (dvd recorder, in ex.) has a digital tuner then you got it, But the Magic about the decoder box is that only cost 40.00 +- dllrs and send the signal to your antenna connector or RCA analog conector. Good luck!

How do L set up the converter with a TV , a vcr and "Dish" satte


It sounds like you need a three way splitter.
You need to reverse the connections; the splitter has input and out. Hook exterior antenna, converter box, and satellite to the three side terminals (out). Hook the single sided terminal to VCR input. Connect the VCR out to the TV input. This configuration assumes that you will be using the VCR to record from all inputs. The TV has to be set to channel 3 to act as a monitor for your other devices.
Hope this solves your dilemma.

How to connect converter box fo older tv which does not have a coaxial cable connector to rabbit ears antenna


Okay if I don't know exactly what your situation is but it sounds as if your TV is not cable ready but instead has terminal screws for spade connectors to connect an Over The Air antenna. If this is the case thay mak a transformer that converts the signal from the coax attached at one end to that of spade connectors at the opposite end. If you do not have this set up but yellow/ white or red/yellow/ white inputs you could purchase an RF modulator and a set of composite cables to accomplish the same goal.
Hope this helps you and if you would please provide me with feedback on my solution by ranking it please. Thank you and if you need further assistance please post a comment to this solution.

Can't connect cable tv


Easiest way is to connect the cable wire (75 Ohm) to your tuner's input.

Best way in terms of performance (if you have HDTV and both your cable tuner and TV have HDMI cables) is to connect the cable box using a HDMI cable it had both audio and video.

Next best is component cable out (Red, Green & Blue wires) to the TV's component inputs.

Next best in terms of performance is to use the RCA cables from the box Video out and Audio out right and left to the Audio Videio inputs of your TV..

You may also use S-Video and Audio cables.

After connecting it up, you need to select the correct input on your TV or projection TV.

Hope this helps. :)

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.
